The Portland Trail Blazers have been one of the NBA’s pleasant surprises this season as they’re in the thick of the playoff hunt with the home stretch officially underway.
The Golden State Warriors have surprised everyone too with just how historically great they’ve been, which is saying something considering they’re defending their 2015 championship this year.
These teams tip off at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. at 10:30 p.m. ET on Friday, March 11.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers may be more competitive this season, but absolutely nobody saw their dominant showing at home against the Warriors coming after the All-Star break. Damian Lillard, following his now infamous All-Star snub, went off for a career-high 51 points en route to a complete blowout over the best team in the NBA.
This time around, Portland won’t have home-court advantage. And you’d better believe it will have the full attention of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and the rest of the Warriors.
If Lillard and C.J. McCollum can find a groove, this one should be competitive. But don’t expect anything like what we saw when these two faced off in February.
Golden St. Warriors
As badly as the Warriors were blown out last time against the Trail Blazers, don’t think this group has revenge on the brain. They have too many goals ahead of them to get hung up on one bad loss.
Against Portland, the key is playing tough defense. You know that Curry and Thompson are going to get theirs, but making the Blazers backcourt uncomfortable is going to be crucial.
Putting enough pressure on the rest of the supporting cast will be important as well, but the Warriors can live with guys such as Meyers Leonard, Al-Farouq Aminu and Ed Davis playing well.
Fifty-one points from Lillard isn’t an option, and Golden State won’t let that happen again.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden St. Warriors Prediction
Golden State should win this game, but the question is: Can it live up to such a high spread against a team 103.8 points per game — the eighth-best mark in the Association?
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Portland ATS
Recent trends indicate that Portland will keep this one closer than anticipated. Expect the Dubs to pull away late, but only enough for a SU win, not a win ATS.
